Dark Souls is the ridiculously difficult spiritual sequel to From Software's Demon's Souls. The doom and gloom role playing game will follow the story of a young knight, but so far we don't have too many details on his past yet. Nikole Zivalich got to get her hands on the title's newest Castle of Traps level and had this to say:
"The next room had the first enemies, Serpent-monsters. These serpent enemies looked like Lizalfos with a snake torso; other variations had a cobra head and torso. They were armed with a shield and sword. After a series of dodging, defending, and stabs, the enemies were dead. The knight moved across a bridge with giant swinging blades moving in alternative synchronization. I was told how key timing was, but even if I did fall, I would have the chance to explore a new area that may have items I would never come across otherwise. That is, if you survive the fall. The knight didn't. Death number two."
